We’re headed for a busy season of coaching changes. No fewer than nine jobs look tenuous, and there’s always a surprise after the season.
We’d put the over/under of firings around seven, including Jack Del Rio’s removal in Jacksonville.
Add it all up, and Jeff Fisher figures to get a chance to get back into the league if he wants to. It sure seems like he wants to.
The latest sign: A report from NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora that two teams have already contacted Fisher. The Jaguars figure to be one of the teams. Fisher has been rumored as a candidate there, and they have the only current vacancy.
La Canfora lists the Chargers, Cowboys, Giants, and Rams as teams that have ties to Fisher. It’s hard to imagine the Cowboys or Giants would have already talked to Fisher.
(Or perhaps Fisher could go to Indianapolis, where he could feel like a winner.)
